    I love the intensity of Iowa Wrestling. That raw caveman aggression. Whose Bjj style do you guys think this sounds most like?

    Wilson Reis. Maybe that just comes to mind because he has good aggressive wrestling, though.

    What about 4 stripe gatekeepers? Well, those are basically blue belts, anyway, right?

    mine too.

    I didn't get it.


    edit... just mine I guess, lol.

    somebody want to explain?

    because it would be hilarious to watch a whitebelt lay complete waste to 90% of the class.

    White belts are typically spazzes and over aggressive. The description the ts gave could fit that of a white belt.

    The only reason i posted is because often times there is negative stereotypes of wrestlers as lacking technique or skill and just relying on aggression and strength.

    lol fourfif.

    When thinking of "raw caveman aggression" in terms of BJJ players, white belts often display that.

    I.E. no technique, all aggression, lots of spazzing, and strength use.


    But the point was not to compare those things to the Iowa Hawkeye's Wrestling team, because obviously those guys have amazing technique in wrestling.

    Its just that the style of wrestling is more, forgiving? In terms of using strength and aggression in way of technique.

    Unlike Jiu Jitsu, which is why there is really no equivalent of that in BJJ players, other than white belts. :D

    The Hawkeye style is perfect positioning, hand fighting, and constant offense and attacking at angles.

    There is not a Hawkeye that scarifices technique for anything.

    But lets not forget that they also had some of the funkiest wrestlers ever like Randy Lewis and Rico Chiapparelli

    I don't think this is true at all. High level guys use strength and aggression. You won't see any top level guys who aren't strong and well conditioned.

    If baffles me why people don't want to admit that speed, strength, conditioning, flexibility aka physical attributes play a part in being a successful BJJ practitioner.

    No offense, but it sounds like those making this analogy don't know shit about wrestling.

    Big strong aggressive players with little technique are going to get launched highest, hardest and furthest. Or just taken down at will. Even by a little guy.


    this. Randy "the impossible leg" Lewis is one of the most advanced technical players out there ever. You think Steve Mocco goes out there and bulldozes people? You guys are delirious. He's got the intricacies of grappling down in a way the majority of this forum will NEVER have about ANY form of grappling.

    Yeah the whole "wrestling is no technique pure strength" is bullshit. Wrestling is grappling just like jiu jitsu and judo. You can have a from of grappling without any technique.

    Shaolin is a pretty aggressive BJJ guy. I have not watched too much Pablo P's vids but the few I have seen he is pretty aggressive and active.
